Crowdfunding APIs?


Looking to build a site around crowdfunding. Does anyone know of any third party APIs to handle this? Or is my best bet to use a payment API that has escrow abilities? Or maybe use Stripe but push out the payment date?


For crowdfunding payments there’s an api from that could be useful in your case.


With stripe you don’t have to bill right away. You can just create a new customer using the credit card details they provide and then bill that customer at a later date. This could be useful for your use case.


Yeah, I had to build a similar system in the past. The only issue with this is that it’s not held in escrow, so the “campaign” could end, and you could charge somebody who has a different card number now or the payment fails for insufficient funds, etc. but it may be enough for an MVP
